CR Model Summary
The redesigned for 2015 Sedona is available in seven- or eight-passenger seating capacities. Under the hood is a smooth and refined 276-hp, 3.3-liter V6 engine matched with a six-speed automatic. The roomy cabin is quiet, but the ride is overly stiff and falls far short of the Honda Odyssey's and the Toyota Sienna's. The interior is nicely finished and inviting, with a new front console that provides handy concealed storage. The second-row seats neither fold flat nor are removable, cutting into cargo capacity. Newly available safety features include forward-collision, blind-spot, and cross-traffic alert systems.
